Donna’s approach to practicing law is to identify her clients’ legal concerns and desired outcomes, educate her clients to establish realistic goals and expectations, and finally, to work with her clients to achieve their goals as efficiently as possible – always with an eye toward minimizing the emotional cost that is inherent in her practice areas. Donna has been a trial attorney in Central Wisconsin for more than 20 years and has represented the rights and interests of individuals in contested hearings throughout Stevens Point, Wisconsin Rapids, Wausau, Waupaca, and Wautoma, where she developed the skills and the reputation of a strong, aggressive, and effective trial advocate when cases do not settle and must litigated.
Donna is an excellent divorce and custody lawyer. She has top-notch skills in litigation, and is very knowledgeable regarding the issues of children. Donna also excels at managing the financial implications of divorce. I recommend her to potential clients without hesitation.
